Four students were the top winners among 132 fourth-graders in Holtville Elementary School’s recent science fair.

First and second place were awarded to students in the categories of earth and physical science and life science.

Heaven Fisher won first place in earth and physical science for her bubble wrap test experiment while Michael Burr placed second for his study examining scotch tape and masking tape.

Hannah Collins earned top honors in life science for her flea control experiment and Noah Pruitt claimed second for his work on a project titled “The Great Pumpkin.”

Holtville Elementary assistant principal Tanya Boone said the four winners moved on to the county science fair at the Lanark Nature Center in Millbrook, where Pruitt earned second place and Burr third place.

“It’s a great honor for our students to go and be recognized for their achievements at the county level,” Boone said. “We are proud of our students and their achievements.”
